1. Chakravarty, Dwarka. Foreign Direct Investment in Global Cities and Co-Ethnic Clusters: Characteristics, Performance, and Survival.

Degree: 2018, University of Western Ontario

This dissertation examines the characteristics, profitability, and survival of multinational enterprise (MNE) foreign direct investment (FDI) in North American “global” cities (GCs), such as Los Angeles, New York, and Toronto. Across GCs and their metropolitan areas (Metros), MNEs often co-locate with their home country and co-industry peers in “co-ethnic” and “co-ethnic, co-industry” (CECI) clusters. Despite their substantial influence on the world economy GCs are relatively underexplored as location units of analysis in International Business (IB) research. Accordingly, I address three research questions. First, how do subsidiary and MNE characteristics differ between GCs, Metros, and other locations? Second, how does subsidiary profitability and survival differ between GCs, Metros, and other locations? Third, how does co-ethnic and CECI cluster membership influence subsidiary profitability and survival? For analysis, I use a sample comprising 2,863 unique Japanese subsidiaries in North America across 1,605 MNEs over the years 1990-2013. I apply a multi-level longitudinal analysis model and determine spatially significant clusters using geo-coding, proximal distance, and density analysis. In the first essay (Chapter 2), I use internalization theory and the eclectic paradigm to explain how subsidiary level FDI characteristics and MNE level assets may differ between GCs, Metros, and other locations. The results largely support my arguments. The second essay (Chapter 3) examines subsidiary profitability in GCs and Metros and co-ethnic and CECI clusters. I posit and find that subsidiary profitability aligns with location and ecosystem advantages. The third essay (Chapter 4) is an extension to Chapter 3 and examines subsidiary survival. For GCs and Metros, I find as hypothesized that the location drivers of profitability lead to higher exit rates. Different from my arguments, co-ethnic clusters have no effect on exit rates, and the positive impact of CECI clusters is limited to locations outside of GCs and Metros. My dissertation responds to calls for a fuller treatment of the global city phenomenon; and for bridging IB research with economic geography. It informs the eclectic paradigm at a sub-national level, adds to conceptual work on MNE clusters, and provides a large sample, longitudinal baseline to inform subsequent theoretical and empirical research.

2. Abdallah, Wagdy M. (Wagdy Moustafa). An Investigation of the Management Accounting Framework for Performance Evaluation in American Multinational Enterprises.

Degree: 1982, North Texas State University

The development of adequate performance evaluation techniques for appraising foreign subsidiaries and their managers in an environment different from their domestic ones has been suggested as an area where management accounting should be extended. This study concerned the performance evaluation of foreign subsidiary managers with the following objectives: (1) to examine the relationships among environmental factors and foreign subsidiary performance, (2) to develop a multinational enterprise (MNE) environmental model to evaluate the performance of subsidiary managers on the basis of controllable factors only, and (3) to test the model in American multinational enterprises for the existence of association among environmental factors and measured performance of foreign subsidiaries. The research method employed in this study was to test for association between noncontrollable environmental factors of a particular foreign country and measured performance of the foreign subsidiary (in terms of ROI) in that particular country. Major noncontrollable factor groups used were economic, political-legal, educational, and social environmental constraints. Advisors/Committee Members: King, Barry Goodwin, Armey, Richard K., 1940-, Spalding, John Barney, Aboulfadl, Nabil, Brock, Horace R..

3. Wu, Zheying. Three essays on distance: examing the role of institutional distance on foreign firm entry, local isomorphism strategy and subsidiary performance.

Degree: PhD, Business Administration, 2009, University of Southern California

This dissertation consists of three essays on the impact of institutional distance on foreign firm entry, local isomorphism strategy and foreign subsidiary performance. These studies employ two samples: the first one includes the foreign banks that entered the United States from 61 home countries during 1956-2006. The second one includes all foreign bank subsidiaries (83 in Essay 2 and 84 in Essay 3) that operated in the United States from 1978 to 2006.; The first essay focuses on the impact of institutional distance on foreign firm entry. It examines the relationship between the cultural/economic/regulatory/political distances and the number of foreign entrants from a particular home country. Moreover, it tests whether vicarious experience moderates the impact of institutional distance. The results support the argument that fewer foreign firms enter the host country market as the institutional distance increases. In addition, the finding also suggests that the negative impact of institutional distance on foreign firm entry is likely to decrease as there are more prior entrants from the same home country.; The second essay examines foreign firms’ decision to imitate local domestic competitors, i.e. the local isomorphism strategy. In this essay, I argue that foreign firms are likely to imitate local domestic incumbents more as the institutional distance increases. Furthermore, this impact of institutional distance is likely to be moderated as foreign firms learn from others’ experience and their own experience. The empirical findings support the primary argument by showing that foreign banks imitate local U.S. banks to a greater extent as the cultural/economic/regulatory distance between the home country and the U.S. increases. Moreover, this impact of institutional distance persists over time.; The third essay tests the performance impact of local isomorphism strategy. Contrary to prior research, this study finds a positive association between local isomorphism and foreign subsidiary performance. In this empirical test, local isomorphism strategy is treated as a self-selected endogenous variable. The results support the hypothesis that local isomorphism strategy, as a function of individual firm characteristics and environmental conditions, has a positive impact on foreign subsidiary performance.
